Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Kansai / Wakayama Prefecture / Higashimuro-gun / Nachikatsura-cho / Nachi Forest
Nachi Forest reviews
The coast line here can rival any I've seen anywhere in the world; and I have seen some in other parts of Asia that are pretty beautiful more »
Beautiful shrine area. Walking up here was worth every step. There are some benches to sit and the view is excellent. The temple itself is in great condition and there are some shops around. An incense burner completes the mystical atmosphere.
What a wonderful temple place!!! Absolutely worth every single step uphill, and the travel with local trains from Osaka to be compensated with a unique temple complex of the 3-legged-raven. Yes, GOT-fans ... a raven with 3 legs, not with 3 eyes :-) As in most places try to be here early. Even though the shrines and temples open up around 9:00, you will have chances to explore the complex and take some good photos for memories, without the risk of being photo-bombed.
